Blue smoke on startup.
My 97, 155,000 miles, has blue smoke on startup at any temp below 50. It is not a lot just a light haze. It's been like this for about a year and a half. There is no excessive oil comsumption, only about a 1/2 qt. Every 5k miles. When I changed the fuel filter it was black so I am assuming that means that there is some injector orings that are leaking. When I smell the exhaust it is a very strong diesel smell and I can't smell any oil. My question, is can a worn out injector or two cause it to have blue smoke?
It has also seemed to have lost power and has lost about 4mpg since I bought it a couple years ago.
